Ladybird Cannibalism

I snapped this on yesterday's insect safari, along side a stream on the outskirts of Bandung in Rice paddy country.

When I took the shot, I thought she was munching aphids, but once the image was on the screen, I realised that I had captured something far more interesting. The female was eating the eggs of a ladybird.

I am not sure if this ladybird grub escaped or was simply moved out of the way, but she seemed far more interested in the eggs.
